      Šerazáda je sedmnáctiletá dívka, která utekla z domova, aby se jednoho dne vypravila do Alžíru, země kde žil její dědeček. Předtím však žije ve squatu s různými lidmi, s nimiž se prostřednictvím dialogů a událostí seznamuje blíže, čímž získáváme pohled na střet tradičního života alžírských přistěhovalců a moderního života ve Francii. Kromě toho se tu zde řeší i nevšední vztah Julieana a Šerazády. Knihu jsem si vybrala v návalu jakéhosi zájm [...]

      Je n'aime pas ce type de bêtise: si c'était pour décrire un squatt, une sorte de fresque Balzacienne, si c'était pour décrire des arabes de Paris, si c'était à propos de le désir de Shérazade d'être toujours libre et seule, comme un version moderne de "Carmen" de Mérimée et Bizet, si un ou plus de ceux c'étaient les cas, j'ai en toute cas trouvé l'écriture maladroite et ennuyeuse - c'est diront on, le même cas avec la mienne, mais c'est pas moi qui a la responsabilité d'avoir pu [...]

      This was a great book, I wish I had paid more attention to it. Set in 1980s France, a dozen or so young people, runaways and revolutionaries, live as squatters in this big apartment in Paris. It was a little hard to get everyone's story straight, but it was such a well told story, a lot happening between the lines. There wasn't really a plot, just an ambling collection of vignettes, with different ideological and sociological descriptions.

      8:28 PM Thursday one of October’s nights I finished reading this novel. I had no intention in writing a review really but I felt like writing something about it I can remember in a year or more. I bought this novel by chance, I went off college tried, exhausted and bored of my projects, studies and everything mostly, decided to have a walk. I put my headphones and walked without caring about anything or anyone around me, I was walking on my own world literary. There was an old man who sells ol [...]

      I have very mixed feelings about this book. A great bulk of the "plot" was unclear. But it was an easy read and showed the lives of a large ensemble cast, namely Shehrazade, coming to terms with her Algerian identity- after fleeing from there to France. I thought Pierrot and Julian were incredibly possessive and all around creepers. I felt no empathy for them. The ending was worth the read.

      I enjoyed this book. The main character is engaging and enigmatic. Short easy to read chapters. So interesting to read about children of immigrants who feel ostracized in their own country and how they struggle with rebellion and belonging.
